Arsenal and Germany goalkeeper Jens Lehmann is confident he remains number one for club and country - and has fired a broadside at press who have doubted his position.

Lehmann, who will play through the pain barrier for Germany in their Euro 2008 qualifier in Wales on Saturday, could not bite his tongue when grilled by the German media at a press conference on Thursday.

"I feel I am the number one at Arsenal and Germany, although I know I have to train hard every day to justify this," he said.
